Subject Code - CPSC (Computer Science)

The Department of Computer Science offers several options in first year: 1. Students whose goal is to pursue a Computer Science specialization should register for CPSC 110. 2. Students looking for an introduction to computing and program design, and who do not plan on taking CPSC 210 or further Computer Science courses that depend on CPSC 210, might consider registering for CPSC 103 instead. Students who have credit for, or have been exempted from, CPSC 110 may not take CPSC 100 or CPSC 103 for credit in Science. Students who have transfer credit from another institution should consult with an advisor to determine whether or not they can get credit for CPSC 100 and/or 103. Students who are currently registered in CPSC 110 or have Computer Science credit from another institution, may not take APSC 160 for credit. Students with sufficient background in the concepts presented in CPSC 110 and an advisor's approval are encouraged to challenge the CPSC 110 course for credit by taking an examination. Additional fees are charged for some courses. For more information students are advised to contact the Department of Computer Science or visit the Computer Science undergraduate website: ( For information on credit exclusion between CPSC and other courses, please consult the Faculty of Science Credit Exclusion List.
